Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Spread some Butter Cream Frosting onto each cupcake. Divide remaining frosting in half; tint one portion red and the other green with food coloring. Place frosting in decorating bags, and using a#366 decorating tip, pipe leaves and petals. Add sprinkles along the edges. Makes 18 cupcakes.
